Pros the manager Sasha is a sweet guy who is very helpful and the hostel was easy enough to meet ppl if you make the effort, it just as usual depends on the group too. The showers were spacious and i didnt have much of a prob with warm water(avoid the handheld ones and go into the main bathroom for the bigger ones with better water pressure) there's a huge supermarket across from the bus station hit that up before walking to the hostel
The rooms are cramped! the walls are soo thin you can clearly here wrappers being thrown away, the uncomfortable bunks don't have latters, NO A/C means in July it's really really hot unless you sleep on the roof, the bathrooms are located in a separate building from the rooms so if you get up like me to go early in the morning it's a bit if a pain.
All in all the facilities are mostly average (for a hostel) and the manager is a Nice guy. If you're on a very tight budget in Crete it's one of 2hostels to choose from. I wouldn't recommend rethymnon for more than 3 nts tops(if u don't have a car) the town is skip-able and the old town just a bunch of tourists shops, nothing special.
